 Embry-Riddle’s long history, focused on safety, has positioned the university to offer an unmatched learning experience concentrating on identifying and minimizing potential hazards. The B.S. in Aerospace and Occupational Safety program gives students direct access to a dedicated and focused faculty who bring years of experience in the field of occupational safety and health.

Because of the multidisciplinary course material, students graduate prepared to work not only in the aviation industry but also in areas such as manufacturing, construction, insurance, transportation, entertainment, and government services.

This program prepares its graduates to provide safety management expertise to organizations following federal regulations and standards from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Department of Defense (DOD), Department of Transportation (DOT), as well as state environment, health, hygiene, and workplace requirements.

The curriculum also meets the Aviation Accreditation Board International (AABI) standards.

Students typically engage in a variety of co-ops and internships across a variety of local, national, and international organizations focused on general safety, training, operations, analytics, and transportation.

Students will study authentic scenarios and learn critical analysis in settings such as The Crash Lab that allows students to examine aviation accidents. Students in this program are often called upon to evaluate and identify potential hazards from other university projects, too. Two student organizations, the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) and the International Society of Air Safety Investigators (ISASI) provide students leadership and networking opportunities outside the classroom.
